is congressman john larson. democrat from connecticut. thanks for coming on the show tonight. >> great to be with you, rev. >> congressman, let me start by asking are you pleased with what we're hearing about the president's plan tomorrow? >> the president has shown incredible strength with regard to this, as you know. his trip to connecticut in which he spoke to us directly about this probably being december 14th in newtown, the worst day of his presidency. and to the very core of his marrow, this has impacted him. and he has resolved to act on behalf of america's children and in the interest of our safety. he would like for congress to respond and i'm sure the vice president has outlined a very constructive, common sense, pragmatic solutions. but if congress cannot act, i'm heartened be i the fact that the president said he will take executive action. there's a number of things i implore him to do under executive actions that are long overdue. but we know the resolve of this president. we hope republicans and the nra come to the table around a comprehensive agenda, but understand tha
lover's pie. and this guy, papa john's founder became a right wing favorite after his cheesy complaints about the health care law. papa john even held a fundraiser for mitt romney and he couldn't believe the house that pizza built. >> what a welcome. what a place this is. who could have imagined pizza could build this? >> who could have imagined that pizza built that. but here's something else that's tough to imagine. >> at a time when the gop brand is at an all-time low, guess where they turned? to pizza. house republicans at their annual retreat today and the ceo of dominos is giving a presentation. the speech is titled, "turning it around." you really can't make this stuff up. should they look to domino pizza man for answers? can they do it in 30 minutes or less? how about a nice piece of humble pie. more on that in the gop retreat next. this is $100,000. we asked total strangers to watch it for us. thank you so much. i appreciate it. i'll be right back. they didn't take a dime. how much in fees does your bank take to watch your money? if your bank takes more money than a stranger, y
the supreme court, under john roberts, sernl lycertainly no l said that health care was constitutional, they decided we better not talk about the supreme court. we better go another way, toure. >> i noticed that the nra and their people keep using obama as this selling tool. they keep putting him in magazines and acting like he wants to take away your guns so you have to buy as many guns as possible. he's only, to this point, been a friend to the nra and expanded where we can carry guns. but these have been the best-selling tool that they've ever had. >> if you look at if nra, they sent out a fund raising letter right after this started saying -- and i'm quoting from the letter, nra fund-raising letter today about president obama's supposed real goal on gun control. the letter says the main goal of the gun banners in congress is not to make school safer, but to ban your guns. and, david, they come with this, well, we need to have our guns in case the government comes in to take -- first of all, if the government came in to take our guns, do you think they're going to knock on the door
on this historic day. may all mighty god bless them and our country over the years. it seems like it was john boehner with the flags that flew over the capital during the inaugural ceremony. it seems like during some of the post inaugural address interviews, they did not give a hundred percent embrace. but they seem to feel the president was magnanimous and there was not the bipartisan -- the partisan bickering, at least not today. tomorrow is another day. >> right. we'll see when they start go earning. but the transition of power does matter. the fact that we transition in this way that people are -- i mean, my favorite two shot, so far, my favorite image, is that that included beyoncyonce stand near paul ryan and there was this vision of them together. this is fun. this is kind of american politics and culture, you know, crossing these lines. and will it hold? perhaps not. but for a moment, it is a recognition that we don't have violent military coups in this country. we have a peaceful transition of power. >> you also saw there chairman frank as the reference in terms of his speech where h
a vision of the great society. it wasn't anti-republican. it was his vision. john kennedy, the new frontier. i think the president from the way i was taking it was saying i think b this is the vision america needs to go in. but it wasn't for just four years. he said we're not talking four months, four years, or 400 years. >> that's exactly right. and you played the clip talking about how the social safety net allows us to take risks and not fear the failure. other countries don't have that. i spent a lot of time in india where there was such a fear of taking on new initiatives and being entrepreneurial because there wasn't that same safety net in place. that is the progressive vision. let's be real. paul ryan, here's a guy who supports privatizing social security, voucherizing medicare. so the president is not putting up a strawman argument. these are exactly the principles that republicans support. and also republicans have never been comfortable with social security and medicare. they use deficits and debt reduction as an excuse to chip away at it. but it is not about deficits and debt. i
